Old cast-iron safe manufactured in France circa 1860.
Made as a safe for storing important documents or jewellery. During the Victorian period it was easy to carry it by the lady or the gentleman thanks to its handle at the top.
These were also used as diplomats lock boxes on trips to the continent.
Marked in front: Bauche Brevete S.G.D.G. - Dieu et mon Droit
It has its key and the lock is fully functional.
Very well protected shipping given the weight.
